Uhhhhh skull binding? It's when kids get their heads wrapped up in leather while they're still young. Nothing paranormal there Winston.

You didn't watch the video. That explanation was debunked. There isn't enough mass in the head to make a conehead that long. It's biologically impossible. Stop making up explanations.

Actually I did watch it, but with a more skeptical viewpoint than one of believing everything I watch on youtube.
But, I'll bite. Who, in your mind, debunked it? Did the hundreds of anthropologists who are experts in Peruvian history and culture debunk it or did some guy?

Also, Scepcop, do you have an actual scientific study supporting the alien hypothesis? A video is well and good on TLC or the Discovery channel, but not for serious discussion.
